Nuclear, water and fossil fuel are the primary sources of our
electricity. Nuclear power is a clean and efficient source of energy. It
emits almost no carbon dioxide which contributes to global warming. It
can generate lots of amounts of energy. The designs of a nuclear are
readily available today and no researching is necessary which will add
to building cost. New designs make it safer than the old generations
which were used in Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, but of course still,
there is no such thing as a fail safe device. If a nuclear plant fails,
it consequences could be catastrophic. The waste which it produces is
also still a problem, and the danger is that it is the only power plant
that produces radioactive wastes. The wastes are somewhat similar to
industrial toxic wastes but more deadly and in the event of a plant
failure, can cause a catastrophe for it can poison the landscape not
just for years but even centuries. The wastes produced can also be used
for the production of nuclear weapons.Hydro electric power is
probably the most widely used form of renewable energy source. It is
clean and produces almost no carbon dioxide emission. It uses the
potential energy of water from a high elevation that drives water
turbines and generators. Hydro electric power plants are a cheap source
of energy because not only is it renewable but it is also not affected
by the rising cost of fuel or coal. However, using hydro electric also
has its raw backs. To construct a hydro electric plant, a very large
reservoir is needed and consequently submerging a very wide area
upstream of the dam. This will in turn destroy ecological systems not
only upstream of the dam but also downstream of it.Fossil fuel
power plants are the most widely used source of energy today. Most
countries use this kind of energy source because of its large scale
power production and continuous supply it provides. Although it provides
large amounts of power, it also produces a lot of greenhouse gases and
is considered as one of the major contributors to global warming. There
are efforts to reduce the emissions of fossil fuel power plants but
experts say that it will not be available commercially and on a large
scale basis until 2025.Wind power is probably the most economical
of all sources of energy. The power of the wind can be utilized by
using a wind turbine or what is popularly known as the windmill. They
can convert wind power into mechanical energy, which can be used to
grind grains or pump water; and electric power with the use of
generators. It can be said that it is like an electric fan working in
reverse, instead of electricity making the blades rotate to produce
wind, the wind rotates the blades to produce electricity. Large wind
turbines can be grouped together in a wind farm to produce large
quantities of electricity for public use. There are also small scale
wind turbines that can be used at home. They are very clean, renewable
and can dramatically reduce electric bills.
